Cervical stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal in the neck area or upper part of the spine. This narrowing can place pressure on the spinal cord. Causes are usually from a disc herniation, bone spurs (arthritis) or ligament thickening.

Cervical spondylosis is a general term for age-related wear and tear in the neck. As we age, the bones and cartilage that make up our backbone and neck gradually deteriorate, sometimes forming irregular bony outgrowths called bone spurs. These changes eventually occur in everyone's spine.
